Why is Cashmere worth your investment?

Why is Cashmere worth your investment?

It comes as no surprise that we all have our go-to pieces of clothing that we choose to use more often than not. Something that feels familiar, goes with almost everything, is comfortable and makes you feel good on various occasions. Since we fall back onto these closet essentials every other day, why not invest in high-quality products that are built to last, in condition and style? Cashmere is one of the most talked-about and luxurious materials on the market and there are reasons for this. For one, many people wonder why cashmere is such an expensive fabric or that it is easy to find alternatives to a cashmere sweater. A cashmere scarf or a sweater, which takes time to produce, will last you for many years compared to a normal sweater. Here are 5 reasons why cashmere is worth your investment.

1. Keeps you very warm

So, what is cashmere? Cashmere wool only comes from cashmere goats and is known to be eight times warmer than regular wool from a sheep. The warmth that cashmere products bring relates to the cost of cashmere. Why wear multiple layers just to keep warm when you can just wear one layer of high-quality cashmere? 

2. Doesn’t take up much space

If you’re going away on a winter holiday somewhere, or even taking the weekend off for the perfect getaway, I’m sure you have had trouble picking out which winter pieces to bring that will actually fit into your bags. Well, another reason why cashmere is such as desirable material is the fact that it is sleek and compact. Packing a few cashmere travel wraps will not take up half your suitcase anymore, as cashmere is much lighter than wool. Cashmere is an essential travel wear that makes travelling a whole lot easier. 

3. Built to last

Cashmere is an extravagant material that is usually on the higher end of the price spectrum. Most cashmere pieces of clothing have a classic design so that it never goes out of season. Cashmere is also one of the most long-lasting fibres you can find, and they can last up for more than 12 years with some Tender Loving Care (TLC). On top of that, our handmade cashmere dyes at Alchemy Story do not fade after washing!

Tip: remove any piling with a regular lint roller and avoid washing cashmere after every use. 

4. Soft, cozy and perfect for sensitive skin

I’m sure we all know the feeling of buying a warm, fuzzy sweater and feeling uncomfortable in it. This is a common problem for those who buy regular wool. Cashmere, however, is not likely to cause any discomfort or itch. The reason for this is that the fibres used in cashmere are very fine, almost half the size of regular wools’ size. These fine fibres make cashmere feel extra soft against the skin and prevent them from causing itches. 

5. Luxurious product

We all deserve a bit of luxury in our lives. Understandably, it is not everyone’s first choice due to the steep price point. Buying yourself a good ol’ cashmere scarf, sweater or travel wrap feels like a treat to yourself! Before you are put off by the price tags that some cashmere products come with, just remember the scarcity and quality of cashmere wool. 

Cashmere does cost more upfront, but is a great investment that you won’t regret. Chances are you’ll be wondering why you waited this long to indulge in this luxurious good. If you are looking to find a Cashmere accessory to match any outfit, then try out our website for some great options.
